Agar: How much polyfil
    #4208287 - 05/22/05 11:52 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Do you use in the tubing on your liquid culture jars?  1/2 inch down into the tubing?  1 inch? 

On a related note--my PC will fit 7 quart jars, but the top is relatively close to the top of the jars.  How should an LC quart jar be covered, given the tubes popping up?  Foil?  Coffee filters? 
I R teh confuzzled on this one. 

Thanks!  :grin:

Tubes should be just a tad shorter than the length of the syringe needle - you use.

1/4 to 3/8ths inch polyfil - stuffed in the top.

Rubber band triple coffee filters over the jar lid.

Loose tinfoil over that (if you have a weight type rocker PC).

Jar lids should be 1/4 / 1/3rd turn loose while PC'ing.

Tighten lids - when you remove jars from PC.

Cool...I actually used a third hole with a self-healing silicone blob for an injection site.  Would that be a problem?  It just seemed that two air exchange tubes would be easier to manage if I had a separate injection site (I'm still learning here :blush:).  Good advice.  Thanks! :grin:

Polyfil is better in this application given the ID of the tubing we're talking about.  :grin:

Yes, but if you pull out the jar when its warm, the water on the polyfil should steam off within a few minutes.
